Comment sought on BECs

PUBLIC comment is sought on a report reviewing the Business Enterprise Centre Network.

The Small Business Development Corporation commissioned the report into the structure and operations of Western Australia’s 37 BECs and made recommendations for the network’s future.

The report Communities of Enterprise: Future strategies for the Business Enterprise Centres Network of Western Australia was produced by the Centre for Entrepreneurial Management and Innovation at the University of Western Australia.

Copies of the report are available at or can be had by phoning Aaron de Rozario on 9220 0222.
